A Chance For Education

This image brought tears to my eyes. 15 Syrian men and women graduating from the Illinois Institute of Technology last weekend. They worked SO hard to get here. They transferred to IIT 3 years ago and have fought every day to succeed and make ends meet. And wow did they make us proud. Many are wearing honor chords in this photo and they have received job offers at the very best companies across the nation – Google, Intel, Apple to name a few. Together, we will work tirelessly to give all Syrians women and men a chance at an education and we will keep fighting to get Syria back.
